    Wanted to take the time to say thank you to all who served their country and especially to those who made the ultimate sacrifice–and also as well as the family members who lost loved ones. This year is especially hard as our elderly face a new enemy- the Covid virus. At a time when we may most want to be with them, we cannot for fear of exposing them to deadly risks. While a poor substitute, I encourage each of you to call, write,email or text a veteran (or a family member who lost someone who served) and let them know that they are not forgotten. It was their sacrifices that allow us to have the freedom to be ourselves. And for our WW2 vets especially- whose numbers are decreasing all too rapidly as they succumb to old age- thank you for giving up years of your young adulthood tat we might enjoy decades of peace!

    I wrote this last year for Memorial Day and I hope it gives us all pause or thought this weekend.

      Thanks Cynthia, Having never served we/I need to be thankful to those who gave the ultimate.  We also need to those who served and came home changed.  Wounded physically and emotionally, those who saw and did things that left deep scars.  My eternal thanks to all who served, those who left there buddies behind.  If you are one of those, thanks and get the help you need and don’t become one of the statistics.  Most of all let us never forget.

      Hi Skippy Thank you for your thoughts . It is a sad day for me. When you think all of those lovely brave people who gave up that precious gift of life just preserve what so many of us take for granted.The very least we can do is take a moment and say thank you. We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy living a full life with freedoms that are unprecedented in world history. Thank You for all you who have served and those who have survived this terrible wars . Democracy and freedom is worth fighting for, our children and grandchild will get to enjoy the freedoms we all enjoy because of you. Luv Stephanie

      Thank you Cyn.

      It is important that we remember those that paid the ultimate sacrifice.  Unfortunately this year there will not be the usual parades and speeches to honor those who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have.  We can however visit a veterans cemetery, donate to a Veterans organization or find a way to leave a message for a Gold Star family.

      To remind us of what their sacrifice means I would suggest the movies “Taking Chance” and “The Last Full Measure”.  They are both very powerful and emotional movies about men who paid the price for freedom and the lives they touched.

      Thank you for remembering us, Cyn.  You posted this last year, just after I joined CDH, and I was touched by the thought.

      Hugs,

      Bettylou
